On this page you will find upcoming testing dates for the Mensa Admissions Test. The Mensa Admissions Test is a battery of two tests, either of which can qualify you for Mensa Membership. The tests take about 2 - 2 ½ hours of your time. It costs $40 cash, check or charge. Please bring photo ID with you. I always recommend bringing reading glasses if you need them as there are many details to see. If you have prior evidence, a test that you have taken in the past, and you would like to know if it qualifies you for Mensa, visit this page at the National Mensa website: Qualifying Scores
You can take the test if you are ages 14 and above. If you have a child younger than that, that you want tested you will have to use the services of a private psychologist or some school systems might provide this service. ****For those interested in taking the Mensa Admissions Test between the ages of 14-17: You need a Parental Consent Form signed to take the Mensa Admission test. Please let me (Vikki Broida at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (216)371-0589) know ahead of time if you are in this age range.
We generally administer the test about once a month, except in late October & early November, when we have several dates and locations to accommodate Mensa Testing Day. Mensa Testing Day is a testing event publicized nationally. Watch this site for dates and locations.
If English is your Second Language or you have a reading disability or timed-testing disability, Mensa has another battery of tests for admission called the Culture Fair Test. It is all pictorial, no reading involved and one portion is an un-timed test. If this test sounds like it is more appropriate for you or someone you know, please contact me as this test is given by appointment only.
Cleveland Area Mensa covers the northeast coast of Ohio including cities from Sandusky to Ashtabula with Cleveland and Cuyahoga County being the location of most activities. We cover the counties of Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Erie, most of Geauga, most of Huron, Lake, Lorain, and corners of Sandusky, Seneca and Summit counties. Here is a map of our territory: Region 3 Map
The map is based on zip codes. It is quite OK for you to come take the test here in Cleveland Area Mensa if it is convenient for you. I have had people come from as far away as Toledo and Erie, PA. If you join your membership will be assigned to the local group of where you reside, or you can preference in to the group of your choice. There is a group to the south of us with a less distinctive name, East Central Ohio Mensa that covers areas that include Akron, Canton, Kent, Warren and Youngstown. We share a calendar with them, and they also give the Mensa Admission test at times.
Currently Cleveland Area Mensa has two Proctors, a volunteer position within Mensa, but we are both certified by Mensa to give the Mensa Admissions Test:
